Birthday Wishes


I love this sentiment from GinaK and StampTV and illustrated by the very talented Theresa Momber from her Elegant Florals stamp set, its perfect size works beautifully when you are trying to make a clean and simple card.  If you haven’t already you should check out Theresa’s beautiful stamp set.  I decided to try the whitewashed watercolor technique that so many of my card making friends have been making.  Love that look.  So for this card I used this beautiful floral image from Flourishes LLC Stamps called Passion Flower and is illustrated by Marcella Hawley.  Love this gorgeous stamp.  I really like the way it turned out and it was fun using my watercolor brush again.

Happy Birthday Lucas!


My Oh So Sweet Grandson Luke, just celebrated his 12th birthday…growing up way too fast for this Nana’s liking.

If you haven’t guessed by the theme of the card, he LOVES Lego’s, he has to wade through them just to get to his bed!  Soooo I happened upon this digi Lego paper and the balloon bouquet that matched.  He loved it.  So once again…

Happy 12th Birthday Luke!

I’m back…


Enough with the house already, I need a little card time and to say hello and let you know that YES I am alive and doing well.  The house should be on the market in a couple of weeks and I have just one more closet in a guest bedroom to go through and I will be able to say that there is not one nook or cranny that I haven’t peered into and cleaned out!  And while it isn’t being delivered to me in my craft room, Dave is still bringing my 5’oclock glass of wine to me every day.  Love that man!

Hope this finds each and every one of my very talented friends and followers well and enjoying springtime. 

My best to you all!
